getting squeeze. let's go forward to january 1. that's when defense department cuts are supposed to take place. 60 days in advance that november 2, warning notices are supposed to go out from contractors to their employees saying here comes some layoffs. the administration does not want layoff warnings going off right before the election. so they said to people like lockheed martin. you don't need to send these layoff warnings out. they say they are hypothetical. lockheed martin says it is the law. we must send the out the notices. the administration says if you don't send out the warnings, then we'll indem anyify you, we'll cover lawsuits that might result if there are layoffs. so the taxpayer is on the hook for not sending out these warning notices. it's pure politics. martha: it's unbelievable, frankly. either we are going to have these defense cut layoffs as a result of sequestration because nobody in washington seems to be able to come together on a budget deal. don't they have to face the ramifications of that and say we are going to have these defense cuts and that means we have t
on defense all night. i've talked to a lot of people and they say the entire debate is about romney. romney needs to play to win. while president obama needs to play not to lose. as long as he can keep him on defense, which he can. the facts are on romney's side. i talked to a senior advisor and just saw the candidate, he is calm and in great spirits ready to go. >> bob: that is what they always say before debates. if you abandon your own vice president medicare proposals? >> dana: they answered that. >> bob: how so? >> andrea: i don't think he will let himself get trapped in the details, bob. he will take it to the president. the facts are on his side. all he has to do is bring up the promises that president obama made. all the promises that he hasn't kept. boston you want to be president, you have to come up with details, too. >> what about skating through on promising to bring down the deficit? he hasn't. he incressed by $45 trillion. what about promising to bring down unemployment? president obama will spend 90 minutes tonight from 9:00 to 10:55 or whatever time talking about how -- >>
job losses were coming if congress and the president go through with the defense cuts called sequestration. >> the impact will be immediate and significant here in virginia. 136,000 jobs will be lost in virginia as a result of this move. >> and though romney wanted to focus on defense cuts, he couldn't avoid questions on the 47% comment. he was forced to defend himself in a series of local television interviews. >> is there a clarification you would offer to voters about what you meant? >> my campaign is about 100% of americans. my whole effort in running for president is to help those people that are struggling the most. this campaign and frankly my presidency if i become president is about helping people in the middle class have a better chance of making ends meet. >> of course, the president is hammering romney on the 47% remark. he is on the air with the third ad on the comment and it is brutal. it is the second time the president put out an ad narrated by romney. the first was america the beautiful ad. look at the new one. >> 47% of the people will vote for the president
. ronald reagan lost most of that debate. he was on the defensive. jimmy carter was attacking him. and then he had this positively brilliant close about are you better off? and he did it so well. peter hart did a bunch of focus groups before and after. clearly reagan had a lower threshold. he had to prove to people he was acceptable. >> that's what mitt -- you're describing mitt romney. you're describing mitt romney because voters -- >> voters don't have the kind of negatives. he did not have 51% of people having an unfavorable view. secondly, you could say mitt romney is as good a debater all you want. gipper against mitt romney when it comes to charm, people saying i want to have this guy on television for four years, it's no contest. >> willie, following up on what mike barnicle said, the one thing mitt romney has going for him is who he is running against. there are a lot of republicans that voted for barack obama that are disappointed. there are a lot of independents that voted for obama who are disappointed. there are a lot of conservatives who don't want to vote for them th
. it is illegal for private stens to own guns for self-defense in eight states and the number is growing with increasing democratic control of state legislatures and govships. wrong. again, the second amendment is still intact and the number of new gun laws enacted by the obama administration adds up to exactly zero. finally, the prediction about how the president would respond to captured terrorists. quote, terrorists captured overseas are given full trials in the u.s. court system, and they have to be allowed access to a number of government secrets to prepare their defense. well, actually government secrets to prepare a defense, i don't think so. here is a secret for you, the top terrorist, osama bin laden, is dead. >>> no doubt if the president wins re-election those and other far right scenarios will get a new luster for the second term. because fantasy leads to more fantasy. >>> up next, the big debate last night between elizabeth warren and scott brown. well, who won that one? that was a top of the card. who lost and what does it mean for the battle sfor the senate? you're watchin
-- they need to be a little aggressive. they need to take -- >> what's the best defense? >> good offense. >> i would recommend the president. why did the cavalry leave the fort to fight the indians? do you know why? >> why. >> they're cavalry. thank you. >>> coming up, we have a new scoreboard. not like in the old days but spinners will be there. let's watch the power of the tweeter, the twitter, what's going to happen? we'll have people talking about real life, in time, while it's actually happening telling us who's winning this thing and which candidate did a better job framing the argument, deflecting criticism. we'll look at body language, too. how they stand, what they look like. caught on tape, running mate's edition yesterday. the tou"the huffington post" qu paul ryan as saying conservatives wanted 30%. that's going to be in the debate. running mates are causing some headaches for the presidential candidates. >>> also, have i some questions of my own for the candidates. i'm going to ask michael steele and eugene robinson to fill in for obama and romney and let me ask my "hardball" quest
trillion just to give you a sense over ten years that's more than our entire defense budget. and you think that by closing loopholes and deductions for the well to do somehow you will not end up picking up the tab. then governor romney's plan may work for you. but i think math, common sense, and our history shows us that's not a recipe for job growth. look, we've tried this. we've tried both approaches. the approach that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. and we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. we ended up moving from surplus to deficits. and it all culminated in the worst financial crisis since the great depression. bill clinton tried the approach that i'm talking about. we created 23 million new jobs. we went from deficit to surplus. and businesses did very well. so in some ways we've got some data on which approach is more likely to create jobs and opportunity for americans. and i believe that the economy works best when middle class families are getting tax breaks so that they've got some money in their pockets. and
, the new generation of military our new, and you didn't do with it so much and now they minister of defense, chief of intelligence. they are new. and to create that relationship, and at the same time create a separation with civilians, military several roles in society which is modern society, it's tricky. we have to do it a lot in the countries that were coming from the soviet union. and that was a transition that we organized that will. and we have countries, mine for instance, came from a military dictatorship and we organized it. we had a spirit of how to handle that. and that is something that not many people have experienced, but i figure europeans and americans do have, and we should be more, trying to work in that direction. >> as the cold war was any there was a big meeting and all of the congress in vienna, i don't know if you recall this. we had all of the senior military leaders from every european country, even included the vatican was represented there, and i was the first speaker, my russian colleague was across the hall from me. and i said, i'm chairman of the joint chiefs o
for the massive defense cuts part of the fiscal cliff coming at the end of the year. >> it is still a troubled and dangerous world. and the idea of cutting our military commitment by a trillion dollars over this decade is unthinkable. and devastating. and when i become president of the united states, we will stop it. i will not cut our commitment to our military. >> the president once again blasted romney's hidden camera comments on the 47% of americans he dubbed victims of government dependence. >> i don't think we can get very far with leaders who writeoff half the nation as a bunch of victims who never take responsibility for their own lives. >> 47% of the people vote for the president no matter what. who -- >> the obama campaign turned romney's secretly recorded remarks into a devastating new ad claiming the gop nominee's words under the families and veterans. >> so my job is not to worry about -- they should take personal responsibility. >> romney two days in a row out to link national security to the nati sluggh recovery. he's seizing on new economic data revising down the 2nd quarter gd
been on the defensive about it which is why when obama is in ohi today he filed trade complaints with the world trade organization. he'll also argue that romney profited from companies while he was at bain capital. he saying it's a margin of error race. inerwo theor romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. > sin ohe two lem forey candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and triedo take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competingisits to the big apple, a whirlwind day mediaappearans. as tis them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual bas. instead they did more subtle keheid end the serious issue education and even less serious topics like who could best suck up to the former president, bill clinton. their sharpest and most substantive change was on ira
on the campaign and frafrmgly the obama campaign has been on the defensive about it which is why when obama is in ohio today he's going to make the amount about ohio. he filed trade complaints with the world trade organization. he'll also argue that romney profited from companies while he was at bain capital. he's saying it's a margin of error race. in other words, that'd code for romney's behind and that's why they're making comments like this one. >> the question was if we lose ohio, could we still win. say if and buts were candy and nuts, every day would be christmas. >> make no mistakes. ohio, big problem for romney. >>> speaking of the two candidates, while they're both in ohio today, yesterday obama and romney rivalled the muppets and tried to take manhattan. they jammed as much as they could during competing visits to the big apple, a whirlwind day of media appearances. it was hard to miss them either physically in new york or on the tv. >> i'm just supposed to be eye candy here for you guys. >> the two traded few actual barbs. instead they did more subtle contrasts on the serious is
've talked about the offense versus defense. mitt romney was maybe getting back on his feet a little bit and then this comes along and not only is it not an effective tool, it's sort of -- in some ways, makes romney look like a chump, the fact that his own party thinks this is what they need to do. >> well, they need to be -- to win the election it's pretty clear. the president's advisors would tell you they need to be talking about the economy. they went after joe biden for his gaffe on saying the middle class has done poorly under the president, but i think, again, they're trying to do things in this tactical way that just hasn't worked for them so far and i think every day they're not having mitt romney out forcefully explaining what the president has done on the economy, is not a great day for them. now, he's in a better place than a lot of the pundits have suggested but i don't really think they have days to waste on things like this and the backlash against it was so strong. when drudge tees something up, even though he tilts right and even though a lot of people denigrate him, it
of corruption in any area means there is an effect on efficiency. for this reason the ministry of defense at the ministry of interior have built their own counter corruption programs which have examined the way they do business and the money flows, the material flows within the system. as a result of their close examination of how they do business internally throughout the chain of command, i can tell you in number of people have been arrested and the message is out there within the ministry of interior and the m.o.d. that corruption will not be tolerated. this requires intensive efforts to get to grips with. the security ministries are in the lead across the government in spearheading the counter corruption efforts. there was a second part to your question. >> to elaborate in the manner in which york implementing the guardian angel program. if you can give some examples of that, the guardian angel program. >> it is the way that people go about their business. keeping an eye on their mates all taking exercise while playing sports or relaxing within -- where has that task to stay on one si
and then contrast that strongly and put romney on the defensive about the fact how can you actually tell the american people that the policies you support, which are the same that created this mess, are going to lead us to a different direction and then don't filibuster. i love the president, but boy, he has a tendency to go on and on in some of those questions and in a debate, that can get you in trouble. >> get in, get out. new polling is showing mitt romney has narrowed the gap. good news for him. in the last two weeks and your tips, you said the governor needs to show passion for the country and it people. what does he say to voters to do that because there is still the sting from that 47% remark that people are not walking away from that is resognating. >> one of the things we often had conversations with rick santorum about. he had no lack of passion on the stage. one of the things he did was leave everybody in a negative tone. with the statistics of where we are now. unemployment being high and poverty being high. and then just walk off and say thanks, everybody. we kept trying to
reduction plan. he wants to spend $2 trillion more in defense, $5 trillion more in a tax cut won't tell us how you pay for, before you even start talking about deficit reduction. it's a joke to think mitt romney will actually take action to redaus the deficit. >> taxes, this week he did come out with this proposal of eliminating $17,000 in deductions. >> right. >> your response to that? >> well, you know, he left out a number of different details of that proposal but i would also say that limiting deductions to $17,000 for middle-class families still results in a tax increase. even in just the health premium deduction, for families last year, were about $15,000. there you go. what happens to the mortgage deduction, charitable deduction, child deduction. he's raising taxes on middle class families. >> if this comes up and mitt romney starts to do that math that paul ryan wouldn't do, i'm sure this will be a topic of discussion. >> how worried are you about the jobs report on friday? >> we face this every month. you'll probably see steady progress. we've created 5.1 million private sector jo
way -- what i would suggest is don't go on defense. everybody in politics has these change positions. so you go after the president for some of those really dramatic flip-flops that he's had just like everybody else. >> rudy giuliani, the former mayor of new york, he's in denver helping the romney campaign get ready for a huge night, debate night in america. mr. mayor, thanks for joining us. >> thank you, wolf. take care. >> thank you. >>> and just ahead here in "the situation room," we're going to hear from the other side, stephanie cutter, the deputy cap pain manager for barack obama, she's going to join us live from denver as well. that's coming up later. our new poll shows voters have very definite ideas about who they expect will win tonight. gloria borger is standing by. she's got the numbers. [ woman ] it's 32 minutes to go time, and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my wa
from a got a little bit defensive and the first minute now they're into more questions. >> they are talking a lot about mathematics for people pleasing over? >> i think that perhaps if there were--getting tired because of all the mathematics. i think that we are seeing that the candidates... and the president. perhaps mitt romney is becoming more enthusiastic and people want to see for some restraint. we will see how that will play out. >> that was a former critique of his. >> yes. when you are trying to interrupt jim lear... >> and if any zingers been i've already heard for some from bid romney. was >> there have been so many that. >> to turn a broad government, the economy. and i have five boys and i am used to people repeating lies. >> that is how we are seeing this to yoback to you. >> in walnut creek a large crowd of supporters for mitt romney have gathered to listen to this first presidential debate. they are very much looking forward to seeing that the candidate has to say. speaking about the economy and that this is an excellent opportunity for the candidate to
back on the defense. hello, everyone. i'm alex witt in for thomas roberts. we'll get into the akin impact. tick-tock with 35 days to go. a new round of polling shows president obama now leads in nine key battleground states that could decide the race for the white house. the president holding a razor-thin edge over romney in north carolina and nevada. he leads by seven points by romney's home away from home, new hampshire. those poll numbers causing the clock to tick and grow louder thousand. the first debate is five days away. >> do you think that he has the ability as a -- >> having debated him 15 or 17 times, yeah. >> he's a pretty good debater, isn't he? >> he's a better debater than any of the nominees on the ticket. >> how much will the debates matter? with iowa one of 30 states castingle balan casting ballots by the end of the month? >> do you know that mccain beat obama on election day, and obama got it in early voting. >> things can change overnight with a great debate performance, but again, mark hallprin, time is running out. >> he's still behind in too many places to wi
has made israel the prime focus -- >> brian: did he give him the missile defense system? >> yeah, he gave him that. look. the president of the united states can't come out and declare israel a public enemy. he can't do that. particularly in the democratic party which has a lot of jews voting for it. so they give their military help, but they isolated them and put all the pressuren israel instead of putting it on egypt, on iran, on hamas, on the plo. he's given 2 1/2 billion dollars to the muslim brotherhood in egypt. he's given half a billion dollars to the terrorists and the palestinian terrorists who called for the extermination of the jews. >> brian: david horowitz, it's safe to say you're not pleased with the speech you heard yesterday from the president? >> that's true. remember, when he came -- right before he was elected, he said we're five days away from fundamentally transforming the united states of america. he is a radical. my book is about the radical mind. i spent my whole life -- i was a radical and studying them. >> brian: you researched it and it's all in the book. th
what holding is. >> pass interference on the defense number 22. why don't they just let the man catch the ball? am i right? >> okay. i do not yet have a ruling on the field but i do have this. all right. what do you think? >> good morning. it's 8:00 a.m. on the east coast. 5:00 a.m. on the west coast as you take a live look at new york city. back with us on set in new york, we've got steve ratner, andrea mitchell. we have a lot to talk about. let's start quickly with the refs. we have some breaking news and i got to tell you, little kate is excited. 9 years old. she plays in the soccer league. and the parents have had to ref over the past couple weeks because those guys have gone to play nfl. it's taken care of now. >> that's great news. >> it happened late last night. the nfl and referees union announced they have reached a tentative agreement that will end the lockout and bring the original, the regular officiating crews starting tonight. the deal good through the 2019 season features increase in average salary for officials. they'll go up to 205,000 a year by 2019. all kinds of thi
defense keeps it close and then he finds a way to work his magic near the end. you have to give that a try. that's not why they brought him in. i think they're going to stick with sanchez stubbornly longer than they should. >> this is why lou holtz is so right, when you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks. the thing is the quarterback's going to have a bad game. you've got to stick with that quarterback, ride the quarterback through the season. and then trade him at the end of the season. you know, sanchez, i don't know if it's good or bad, but every time he threw a pass, he was looking over at tebow. and it distracts you. >> i don't think that's what he was looking at. >> they've got 12 more games. if they ride him out through 12 more games, they could be in trouble. >> they could be in a position to get geno smith or matt barkley. >> they just trade him. >> so let's talk about the saints/packers. packers get jobbed on "monday night football," almost get jobbed again yesterday at home against the saints. >> it was going to be a riot. darren sproles fumbled the ball. the ball w
. but that should give us a little space for people to feel less defensive so that we can in fact root out those acts and behaviors. i wanted to ask a little bit about your work at the museum because obviously as you point out, these are imaginary representations of indian. talk to me about how the actual historic work that you're doing at the museum in d.c. helps to counter these images. >> well, we have museums in both washington and new york, and in both of these museums, we're trying to represent native cultures in an appropriate way. when i say in an appropriate way, what we really mean is that we involve the indigenous nations themselves in the representations of their cultures and histories. for many, many years, educational institutions, including museums, took it upon themselves to say we're the experts and we know who -- what these people are. we do a very different thing and most museums do now. say you can't have an authentic representation of native people unless you involve them in the creation of these exhibitions and programs. so in both of our museums, we're just trying to get p

darn good economy when we were playing bill clinton's tax rates and then it cuts defenses we haven't done in 30 years and entitlement programs. >> there's a few on the left that admit that going back to the clinton tax rates is not just for people who are 250, it's for everyone. >> i agree with that. >> $200 billion in the middle class from the bush tax cuts and $100 billion from the payroll tax cut -- >> it would do a lot. >> we should take our medicine, we should do it. >> that's where i think you're right. we have to -- any politician who says democrat or republican, we're going to get out of this without suffering some pain -- >> that's what we're hearing from paul krugman who says any democrat that goes along with the simpson/bowles. >> only for one reason, you shouldn't raise the -- you shouldn't raise the eligibility for medicare to 67. that makes no sense at all. but otherwise -- >> why doesn't it? >> because medicare is the only universal health care plan that we have in this country. and to raise it at the time when people are retiring is insane. and furthermore, the savi
because in the last few weeks we've heard him inching closer to a defense of the mandate and of his own healthcare law which he never actually repudiated but which he sort of backed away from during the republican primary and as you recall, it was a big topic in the republican primary debates being attacked from the right. rick santorum was particularly effective at sort of prosecuting that right wing case against the mandate. but now we have romney saying things like the healthcare law that he passed in massachusetts demonstrates his compassion. and the right screams every time he says something like that. but it will be very interesting if he -- to see if he takes the debate as an opportunity to actually make a closer embrace of the healthcare. >> eliot: molly you're exactly right. he was for it before he was against it. dey, he finds behind this faux federalism. a state should pass it not the federal government which misses the question about whether this it is logical as a matter of healthcare policy. how does he
